Last night’s episode of The Flash took an interesting turn . . . or at least made an interesting “stop” along the way of season three. After a conversation with Jay Garrick about tampering with the timeline, Barry Allen decided to stay in his current moment and work from there. The Rival also returned, with full knowledge of how Barry had messed with the timeline. Turns out that “this world” is being prepared for something. Here’s the preview for next week:
My theory is that we’ll get back to the original timeline by season’s end, but not before this timeline has a high-stakes confrontation with some great force of evil. I suppose only a season’s worth of time will tell.
